We Believe

We believe in chiropractic care on your terms.

At Gallatin Valley Chiropractic, we believe that you should be in control of your healthcare because you know your body better than anyone else. This means you will never be pressured into unnecessary or excessive treatment plans. Through careful evaluation of your condition and individual needs, we present the best options so you can decide on a course of action.

We believe that pain should never inhibit your lifestyle. Dr. Dustin and Dr. Rachel

Dr. Dustin and Dr. Rachel are classic Bozeman outdoor enthusiasts. They know first-hand the importance of stopping pain from interrupting the things you love. For Dustin, that’s skiing and snowboarding (that’s right – both!) around Big Sky where he loves to play in the backcountry on powdery winter days.
Both Docs are avid hikers, spending time in the mountains near Bozeman and their favorite peaks in the Beartooth Mountains and Glacier National Park. And like many in the valley, fly fishing is a hobby. With the Gallatin River in the backyard, it’s hard not to love teasing the trout.

The Rising family loves everything outdoors—hiking, boating, fly fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, camping and rafting. Dr. Dustin and Dr. Rachel are sticklers for properly aligning their spines before and after every adventure. Chiropractic care ensures they stay healthy and pain free. They can do the same for you.

We believe a key to a happy, healthy life is family.

The health and welfare of family members significantly influences our individual health. The Risings continue to be greatly influenced by their close-knit families.  Dr. Rachel was born and raised in Ontario, Canada (eh...?) by her loving parents, Michel and Denise Lacroix, she's also very close to her brothers, Justin and Nick.
Bob and Deb Rising

Brought up by his wonderful and supporting parents, Bob and Deb Rising, Dr. Dustin was born and  raised in Dickinson, North Dakota. Like Rachel, he has two fantastic brothers; the older brother, Brent, is a dentist in Omaha and the younger brother, Jordan, owns a helicopter drone company in Montana. The cutest members of the Gallatin Valley Chiropractic team are Brecken, Tavin, and Croix, the Rising’s three boys. Always smiling, Brecken is already leading the outdoor adventures with Mom and Dad. Tavin is learning quickly in the footsteps of his older brother and soon enough will be an outdoor enthusiast as well!  Croix is loving both big brothers and enjoying the chaos of the other two!  Of course, no Bozeman family is complete without a happy golden retriever named Koda.

At Gallatin Valley Chiropractic, we value family and have designed our practice to help care for your family too. In addition to general chiropractic care, we offer prenatal and pediatric chiropractic. Let our family take care of yours, no matter the stage of life.

Visit Dr. Dustin Rising, Dr. Rachel Rising, or Dr. Clay Winters at Gallatin Valley Chiropractic of Bozeman and see what a difference chiropractic care can make in your life!
